Submission + - Possible security breach at Dropbox? (dropbox.com)

Richard_at_work writes: "In a thread that has now been ongoing for almost a week, the evidence has been mounting that Dropbox has possibly had a security breach, with many users reporting spam being delivered to Dropbox-only email accounts.

Dropbox has denied this so far, but with the forum thread on the issue now surpassing 250 replies with most users reporting the same sort of thing (spam email for the same "service" all coming in on email addresses only used for Dropbox, and in many cases aliases specifically created for Dropbox with no spam hitting the catch all addresses for the same domains) the likelihood is that something is going on here.

Users were first reporting it as being limited to German Dropbox users, but it has gradually spread across a fairly representative sample of users across the globe now.

With disparity of ISPs, email systems and locations involved here, could there be any other explanation?"
